Obverse 1 Reverse A
Obverse Diagnostic Point(s) Reverse Diagnostic Point(s)
Comments: Obverse 1 exhibits a faint die crack from the top of Liberty's head, down through her ear and lower hair curves and continues along her right arm, ending at the elbow.
Reverse A is the same reverse die used in 1856 to strike proof coinage. A die line from the rim denticles to AME(R)ICA is the key diagnostic point.
